Hi, Here I want to ask the situation of my husband. So the husband’s travel history went outside the island on the 26th and 28th until he arrived home at 8 pm through Soekarno-Hatta airport. Arriving at home to avoid undesirable things my husband did isolation independently in the 14-day plan room. But since the 29th experienced a sore throat. What steps do I need to take at this time? Did my husband enter suspect / suspect? Do I need to see a pulmonary doctor or have a covid 19 test? If there are no other symptoms, do you still need to continue isolation for 14 days? And what natural medicines or herbs need to be consumed to get rid of a sore throat? Please help. Thanks.

Hello Maya,

Thank you for the question.

A history of traveling outside the island, especially by plane, can indeed increase the risk of your husband contracting COVID-19, so you are required to undergo independent isolation at home. If during this isolation he experiences throat pain, without any severe symptoms, such as shortness of breath, high fever, and severe cough, then his status can still be classified as suspect (people under monitoring) COVID-19.

suspect COVID-19 does not need to go directly to the doctor, especially undergoing COVID-19 test (ie with a throat swab). Instead, the main steps that need to be taken are:

 Rest at home, don't go out unless urgent. First limit interaction with others, keep a minimum distance of 2 meters when interacting with others, do not carelessly exchange personal items with others. Eat lots of foods that are warm, easy to digest, don't be too spicy, especially greasy, and balanced nutritional value Expand to also drink warm water, can also be added honey or ginger Improve personal hygiene, including by bathing diligently and regularly washing hands with soap Drinking paracetamol so that throat pain is reduced Limit excessive screaming Do not smoke Further, if more than 14 days the complaint does not improve, or if in this isolation the complaints actually worsen, your husband better go to see a doctor directly. If necessary, later the doctor can give you medicine, or also refer you to the ENT doctor / internal medicine in order to get the right treatment.

Hope this helps ...
